Financial Aid Award Notification

<p>Hey Guys!</p>

<p>Err, hopefully you applied for financial aid forUCI and went onto UCIrvine</a> Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships Home and did all that "My Aid Award" stuff a couple months back, otherwise the following won't apply to you and you'll have no idea what I'm saying. Haha.</p>

<p>Anyways, if you did, if you remember all the way back in like the beginning of April, we got an email titled "Your 2010-11 UCI Financial Aid Award Notification is Available". It pretty much said to go onto their website and accept their aid awards and stuff. We had to do all that stuff by a certain deadline which has passed already.</p>

<p>I already accepted the loans and grants and stuff and my status says I'm on time and stuff, but for some reason though, I got the exact same email with the same title and content sent to me again Thursday and now I'm rather confused X_<strong><em>x IDK if I'm supposed to accept the Aid Awards stuff again or just ignore it or whatever -</em></strong>_- Bleh. Anyways, did you guys get the same email? And if so, is it a mistake or something, or should we just follow it's instructions again?</p>

<p>Thanks! :D Just trying to keep in check to see where I'm at in all this stuff :P</p>

<p>Accept it again. B</p>

<p>because the same thing happened to me.</p>

<p>I haven't even recieved any notice whatsoever from financial aid. . . Waiting to see my awards. I've been selected for vertification and ever since --silence.</p>

<p>i got the SAME exact email too!</p>

<p>i say just accept it again</p>

<p>I'm in the same position as xxsteelxx. Ugh I need to change my award acceptance, Last time I put no loans but something happened and I need the federal loans.</p>

<p>i havent gotten any email either....>< hmm</p>

<p>Thanks for all the responses, everyone! :]</p>

<p>Yeah. I just reaccepted them. I think the reason why the e-mail was sent to me again was because I didn't do everything on the My-To-Do List. :O</p>

<p>As for those of you who didn't get their e-mails, I'm not really sure why it is like that. :\ Maybe you can call them and ask. Bleh. All this college stuff can be so confusing X___x</p>

<p>i got an email for verification too. does anyone know when theyll let us know the aid award? the number to call is just an answering machine so it doesnt help much</p>

<p>don't you just go to that link at the start of the thread > log onto my aid > log in and check it there? :o i'm not really sure. sorry :&lt;/p>

<p>is anyone doing loans? haha..idk if i should cas of interest rates -____-</p>

<p>@starsfromabove, depends what kind of loans, and depends if you NEED the loans or not.</p>

<p>Stafford Direct unsubsidized = Interest rates accrue when you start.
Stafford Direct subsidized = Interest rates accrue AFTER graduation (after the grace period).</p>

<p>Direct PLUS loans = Interest rates accrue from the start, high interest rates, usually taken out by your parents.</p>
